I found these questions on Tumblr when I wasn’t staring at the life ruiner, and I thought that they would be fun to post on this blog.
GREED: What is your most expensive book? What is your least expensive book?
I think my most expensive book would be The Children of Hurin audiobook. Even with my store credit and the discount I still paid over $40 for it. My least expensive book is a history of the American Civil War that I found in a used bookshop for fifty cents.
WRATH: Which author do you have a love-hate relationship with?
Maybe Stephen King should go for this since I have read enough of his work to the point where I can say what I love and hate.
GLUTTONY: Which book have you deliciously devoured over and over again with no shame whatsoever?
It’s been awhile since my TBR pile hasn’t been the center of my reading experience. However, I have read The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer: My Life at Rose Red multiple times and enjoyed every moment of it.
SLOTH: What book have you neglected to read due to laziness?
I’ve had the Little House series for twenty years and not read them all so I would say they are a perfect candidate for this answer. I don’t know why I haven’t read the rest of the books that we didn’t read in school. I did read Farmer Boy last year in an effort to not be lazy. Still I want to reread the first two before I continue the rest because I think it would get me in the mood and it’s hard to remember stuff read to you in second grade.
PRIDE: What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
I guess that choice would fall to Lolita. I did a research paper for Abnormal Psychology on Humbert’s particular disorder so perhaps that makes me more qualified to sound intellectual when discussing it.
LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?
I like characters that rely on their wits as much as their brawn, those who defend the weak and abused, and… okay I really don’t know what all I like in characters. There are different circumstances. Traits I like in one do not necessarily mean that I’ll like another character with similar attributes. I suppose it all comes down to a writer’s talents in making me feel for their creations.
ENVY: What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
The Silmarillion as a leatherbound hardcover, Easton Press edition. The red leatherbound edition of The Lord of the Rings. The War of the Jewels and The Peoples of Middle-Earth in the History of Middle-Earth series.
